The FBI raided Roger Stone’s Florida home in the wee hours of a January morning.
The moment was captured by CNN, staked outside the day following Mueller’s appearance in court. But it wasn’t CNN that scored an exclusive video of Stone being walked from the home by agents.
CBS12 News, an affiliate of the right-leaning Sinclair Broadcasting, obtained surveillance video from inside the FBI raid and Stone’s arrest.
The CNN video showed FBI agents banging loudly on the door announcing that they were the FBI. Yet, Stone said he was still shocked when he opened the door.
“I opened the door and in my front yard, I was staring down the barrel of two assault weapons and I saw a dozen other FBI agents in the background, all wearing night goggles, full SWAT gear, sidearms, and so-on. On the ground was a large metal device used to break down a door which was unnecessary,” Stone told Sinclair in an interview.
More agents came via boat behind Stone’s home.
Stone, known as a self-described “dirty trickster,” is accused of making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering.

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor
Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."
Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend. "That is a really unfortunate thing. That's not how we do democracy here in the United States, and we need to be ready to respond to that forcefully."
Trump economic task force member once called minimum wage law the ‘Black Teenage Unemployment Act’
Art Laffer, a member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus economic task force who last year was honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, once referred to the federal minimum wage law as the "Black Teenage Unemployment Act" on Fox News while he attempted to claim that it made "no sense whatsoever."
"The minimum wage makes no sense whatsoever to me," Laffer told host Jenna Lee on the since-canceled Fox News show "Happening Now." "Honestly, it's just the teenage — 'Black Teenage Unemployment Act.' And this is the very group that we need to have jobs — not be put out of work because of a minimum wage. So, I'm very much in favor of, at least for teenagers, getting rid of the minimum wage."
